Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes has seen himself ascend to an elite group of United scorers after inspiring an unlikely comeback with a well struck effort at St Mary’s yesterday.
With the Manchester outfit two goals down in the second-half against a firing Saints, Fernandes collected a cross from the right from Edinson Cavani and swivelled before firing a low shot into the bottom corner to set his side up for what later became an incredible comeback for the visitors.
The Portuguese now finds himself amidst a couple of United greats to have found the back of the net on five consecutive occasions away from home, with Iconic Dutch striker Ruud Van Nistelrooy the first to achieve the feet in 2003.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic wasted no time in banging the goals for United upon his free summer transfer from the French capital in 2016 and quickly matched Nistelrooy’s record in 2017.
Robin Van-Persie also joined the party in 2013, following his move to Old Trafford from London rivals Arsenal.
26-year-old Fernandes is already on the list and could see his fortunes swell higher when next United travel away to East London to face West Ham on Saturday, but will first off trade tackles with French Champions PSG to secure qualification into the round of 16 in the Champions league on Wednesday.
